Perry is writing another adaptation of one of his plays and Bassett has announced she'll be a star in the project. The newest film is called Meet the Browns and Perry plans to start filming this July. According to Bassett the story is "sort of a city mouse-country mouse story," she says. "I’m the city mouse. I’m the sympathetic one."
*If my hunch is right, then this is the movie Deelishis said she would be playing Angela's daughter in. Either way this is exciting and I am seriously looking forward to more news on this film!
Here is a summary of the stage play:
MEET THE BROWNS is a family comedy that, despite the absurdity and uproarious antics, provides familiar themes that many viewers should be able to identify with. When Ol' Pop Brown dies at 107 years old, the family is hard-pressed to to meet the expense of the funeral. Eldest son L.B. and his wife Sarah--Pop's caretakers for 11 years--just aren't able to swing it with the $400 Pop left behind. Luckily there's Mi-Lay, their uppity relative who nonetheless takes care of the bill. As the family arrives for the funeral, the audience gets to know their quirks and eccentricities, and through all the arguments, infidelities and scatological humor, love still prevails.
